Do some hens just NEVER lay eggs?? One of my black sexlinks is over 37 weeks old, big and happy and healthy, comb and wattles still small and pinkish - she never goes near the nesting boxes and won't squat for me, no sign of her being ready to lay. This freeloader is driving me crazy!! She's so sweet and should be an excellent layer according to the breeder (she's a barred plymouth rock / RIR mix), her sister has been laying small pink eggs faithfully for a about 3 weeks now - the girls are from the same hatch. I know that there is no rushing a pullet and some are slow to mature but this is ridiculous, all other hens are laying almost an egg a day each!!
